[ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: oh, yeah, we love new york. you come here often? i know you are out in l.a. doing "the office." >> yes, yes. i'm in l.a. doing "the office." i'm getting married in new york,
though, so i've been doing some wedding planning back here. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: oh, my gosh. congratulations. very, very exciting. >> thank you very much. >> jimmy: now, you being in "bridesmaids," does that make it easier or harder? >> i don't think i truly understood "bridesmaids" until being the bride. no, i did. but it's, like, very stressful. i'm not enjoying it. i'm enjoying the idea of getting married, but the idea of planning this production has not been as much fun. >> jimmy: it's too much. >> it's too much. >> jimmy: you know, somebody is going to complain about it, too. there is going to be some weird cousin or something. "i don't like this. you call this steak?" [ light laughter ] and you go, what is this guy's problem? i spent hours and hours and days and months. >> exactly, we are not doing steak. it will be just, like, rice. no, i'm kidding. i want people to come. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: just bland. >> yeah, it's just bland. it's a bland option. >> jimmy: just rice alone. now, we were talking backstage because will was walking around. i don't know if it was will, but there was a man walking around with tight pants on. [ laughter ] he reminded you of will ferrell.
and you met will. >> i did. >> jimmy: he did "the office"? >> he guest starred on "the office" as d'angelo vickers. he was a regional manager after michael scott left. and he was so funny. >> jimmy: he's one of the funniest guys. >> well, of course, yes. and you are, too. anyway -- well -- >> jimmy: you smell very nice. >> thank you very much. [ laughter ] so he -- i'm obviously a huge fan of his, and mindy kaling my co-star on "the office." >> jimmy: i love mindy kaling. >> she's the best. [ cheers and applause ] she and i wanted to get a picture with will ferrell, but we didn't want to, like, embarrass ourselves by actually asking him to pose with us. so we did something, like, arguably more obnoxious, which is to take a picture when he wasn't looking of me with him so that we could show our, you know, parents. [ light laughter ] and i took one. will ferrell did not know about it. he may be finding out now. and might be a little angry. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that's an awful picture. that is the picture you have
with will ferrell? [ laughter ] >> yeah, it's great. >> jimmy: oh, my goodness. in st. louis, it's up on our mantle. [ laughter ] oh, that was ellie with will ferrell. >> jimmy: he's the nicest guy. you can always ask him for a picture. >> it doesn't make any sense -- i know. he couldn't be nicer. he was real mean after he found out about that. >> jimmy: yeah, very mean guy. now "the office" just wrapped its eighth season. when did you come into "the office?" >> i came at the end of season five. >> jimmy: season five. >> yes, the end of season five. >> jimmy: how did you get that job? >> i went into meet with the producers of "parks and recreation," another great nbc show. [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: love those guys. amy poehler. >> i was just watching you guys on the show together. so funny. >> jimmy: she is a genius. >> i know. she is just amazing. but i didn't get the part. >> jimmy: which is not that amazing. thanks a lot, amy. so, you didn't get the part on "parks and rec." >> i didn't get the part. yeah, exactly. so, i went back to this part for -- erin came up on "the
office." so, i'm actually very lucky that i didn't get kicked off because i had a strange encounter with ricky gervais. ricky gervais, of course, starting the original and an executive producer on the show. "the office" went to the emmys. it was obviously my first emmys. and i saw ricky gervais talking to b.j. novak, who is also on the show. so i went up and was excited and i said, "hi, i'm new on the show." and he sort of looked at me like, that's nice. i can't do a british accent. he was like, okay. and it was sort of weird. and i thought, well, someone isn't very happy about the casting. so it was a weird encounter, and then i just sort of left because i could tell something was strange. and later -- >> jimmy: what was it? >> well, i'll tell you. i saw b.j. i said, "what happened back there?" i, like, made a major error. and he said that ricky thought i said, "hi, i'm you on the show." like, i said "new." he thought i said "you." he thought i was, like, this crazy fan who, like -- >> jimmy: "i'm you, man.
i'm in your dreams, man." [ laughter ] he's freaking out. >> i think he didn't know what to do with it. like, i think she's a fan. i appreciate that she watches the show, but she's not me on the show. >> jimmy: that's so awkward. oh, my gosh. i haven't seen him since, so i don't -- >> jimmy: well, he watches our program. so ricky, she's fine. she is not a stalker. she's the best. ellie kemper, we love you. very cute. [ cheers and applause ] very funny. you would love her. i want to show everybody a clip of you on "the office" that aired earlier tonight. here's ellie kemper in tonight's season finale of "the office." >> i just want you guys not to worry 'cause everything is going to be just fine. >> no, no, that isn't what we're talking about. i mean, what was that accent? and, last time i checked, you were drunk. now you're not drunk. >> no, unfortunately, it's true. he's been a nightmare. and the worst part is he's been taking it out on me. >> you hit her? >> no. no. that is not the deal.
